Neck Pain CAN be helped!
I know that dealing with neck pain is never an easy task. You twist, turn, try leaning back, try leaning forward. There’s really not a whole lot you can do in a given day once you start to experience neck pain. Using chiropractic for neck pain is a pretty well-known treatment method these days; unfortunately it has almost become comical at just how simple it is. You come in, lie down on the table, then a few yanks and cracks later you’re done. In and out in 5 minutes flat. Here’s why Sports Medicine Chiropractic treatment is better.
So why fix it if it ain’t broken?
This is a very outdated chiropractic treatment philosophy. These days there are many more clinics adapting a “sports medicine” philosophy.
Let’s take a patient suffering from neck pain. They could walk into 2 different chiropractic clinics and have 2 completely different experiences. One clinic they get the standard treatment (in and out in a few minutes), and the other is sports medicine. At the sports medicine clinics the standard chiropractic neck pain treatment will be applied, but also a whole host of other treatments will be explored:
- Electrical Muscle Stimulation
- Soft Tissue work
- Therapeutic Exercises
- Kinesiology Taping
These are just a few things that are becoming much more mainstream for chiropractic neck pain patients we treat in the Tigard community, all of which lead to a much faster recovery time and ultimately less time and money spent at the doctor’s office. Much more to come on this and other types of conditions, including those that can increase risk of neck pain, that a sports med chiropractor can keep to a problem before it even begins.
